Ullapool the village

"Tranquil Ullapool epitomises what every coastal Scottish village should look like. From the whiteness of its shore frontage to the breathtaking landscape that surrounds it, this is a place to go if you want unspoiled and remote village charm. Ullapool has excellent tourist facilities and makes a great base for exploring the Highlands." BBC.co.uk

Ullapool is a beautiful fishing village on the north-west coast of Wester Ross in the Highlands of Scotland.
It is renowned as the entertainment, artistic and cutural centre for the north-west Highlands. There is an active Theatre, Art Galleries, a Landscape Photography Gallery, a Museum and many atmospheric pubs, where live music is frequently performed. There are several (award-winning) restaurants and take-aways, a wide variety of shops, a Leisure Centre with Swimming Pool, Banks, Bookshops, Post Office, Library and a Golf Course (the Ullapool Tourism Association site has all the details). Not to be missed are the weekly performances by the award-winning Ullapool Junior Pipe Band (usually Thursday evenings during the summer).
Ullapool is surrounded by mountains, and is a perfect base for hill-walkers and ramblers. An Teallach, the Beinn Dearg range, the Inverpollaidh mountains, and many more, are all nearby.
The main ferry to the Isle of Lewis leaves Ullapool Pier twice per day.
